Music

Since Verbal Diarrhoea has been going for a while now, with several hundred posts to its name, I thought it was high time I should make things easier to find or browse. So here’s an index of all the music posts I’ve written so far. I’ll try to keep it updated as regularly as possible.

There are three sections here: Album reviews, song reviews and back catalogue reviews for a few artists: ABBA, Alanis Morissette, Bjork, Kate Bush, Kylie Minogue, Mariah Carey, Ayumi Hamasaki, Madonna and Tori Amos.
